TEKKEN 8 is getting a completely new character to join the series, Azucena. Not just that, but Raven is also returning after appearances in TEKKEN 5 and TEKKEN 6.
Known as the “Coffee Queen”, Azucena is an MMA fighter from Peru. She is the latest heir in the Ortiz family line, a family running a Peruvian coffee plantation. She decided to compete in The King of Iron Fist Tournament to promote the Ortiz Farm. Azucena fights using movement based on Mixed Martial Arts, while incorporating some slightly unconventional techniques, such as the Liberador, where she shifts into a stance in which she doesn’t block her opponents but dodges their attacks by instinct.
After he first disappeared following the events of TEKKEN 6, Raven underwent intensive training and comes back even stronger in TEKKEN 8. His style mixing ninjutsu and powerful strikes, along with his unique “Soul Field” stance, will give players a versatile arsenal, using clones and teleportation to master the rhythm of the battlefield.
TEKKEN 8 will be released on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S and PC with no release date announced.
